René Burri by Tanino Musso

The Musée de l'Elysée presents a previously unreleased film, drawn from the exhibition René Burri, Explosions of Sight, produced by Tanino Musso during a trip to Beirut in 1991 with Gabriele Basilico, Robert Frank, Fouad Elkoury and Dominique Eddé . 

This film is generously made available by Tanino Musso, who wishes to pay tribute to René Burri: "I knew the photographs of the artist Burri ; meeting him personally and following his work was fascinating. What struck me the most was his discretion and the attention he paid to his surroundings, as well as his spontaneity, even as I was recording images of his work for one of my video projects. Ironic and capable of intelligent and lively joy, he was always careful not to disrespect the ruins that surrounded us. The war had been over for a few weeks, life had begun again and as an artist and witness René was able to tell this complex scenario with a meticulous lightness.”
